AFRICA NORTH HYDRO & IRRIGATION 2

 ELECTRICITY & IRRIGATION

The estimated cost of an irrigation  & micro electricity system is $1,286,000 under normal circumstances in North Africa. The probable cost will be double or triple because no project like this has ever been accomplished:

The range of $1,286,000 to $3,850,000 of Irrigation Costs will be borne by private investment. The cost of the electricity is $.03/Kwh. The market price of electricity in remote areas of Africa is well over $.15/Kwh. That means a tremendous return on investment for the entrepreneur. 

OUR STRATEGY

Stage 1   Agricultural Mechanization of Africa                                                   Stage 2   Today’s Tall Trees Nursery: Carbon Tax Fund Resource
Stage 3   Micro Finance and Landlord Cooperative for Irrigation 
Stage 4   Irrigation in Remote Areas using moving water energy.
Stage 5   Electricity in Remote Areas created from moving water.

Northern Energy Highway: 6,500 MW to El Fasher, Sudan

Where does all this electricity come from? the Congo River near Inga.

  ELECTRICITY & IRRIGATION

The estimated cost of an irrigation  & micro electricity system is $1,286,000 under normal circumstances in West Africa countries. The probable cost will be double or triple because no project like this has ever been accomplished:

The range of $1,286,000 to $3,850,000 of Irrigation Costs will be borne by private investment. The cost of the electricity is $.033/Kwh. The market price of electricity in remote areas of Africa is well over $.15/Kwh.

The Western Energy Highway to Lagos would deliver 1,000 MW and would cost $600 million. Western Highway would expand to 4000 MW in 2012 and to 8,000 MW in 2020 to Cameroon and Calabar, Nigeria. Continue reading AFRICA WEST HYDRO & IRRIGATION 2

AFRICA ELECTRICITY & IRRIGATION 2

The Second Green Revolution starting in Africa

Micro Irrigation, which is 95% efficient — meaning that almost all the water is applied to nurturing the plants compared with as little as 20% in traditional irrigation. While irrigated land makes up only 17% of all farmland, it produces 40% of the world’s crops.

The Green Revolution has been losing its momentum for a long time. Growth in world grain production slowed from 3% per annum to 1% over the last decade. Improper irrigation techniques cause some of the problems: too much water in the fields leave behind salts that build up in the soil and this ultimately leaves the land infertile.

Somehow the U.N. predicts that farmers will increase the area of land under cultivation by 27% over the next 18 years. Sustainable agriculture will develop without exhausting the land. Organic farming will become more attractive as fewer farmers will depend on chemical fertilizers, for example, beans replace the fields’ lost nitrogen.

Genetic manipulation will create more bountiful crops. Micro-irrigation will expand to more than the present 1% of all irrigated lands. Together all these trends could spur a Second Green Revolution –– one that would be less destructive that the first.

WATER TRANSFER: PACIFIC RIM 2

Water Transfer 

  • The new patented pipeline, called HUG require little or no huge water pumps. This water pipeline, encourages a laminar flow with little or no friction. This means a water transfer system in the Pacific Rim would go for hundreds of kilometers with fewer pumps
  • The traditional method is a straight pipeline, which develops a turbulent flow, caused by the friction on the inside lining of this pipeline.
  • This old pipeline system requires several expensive large dimension water pumps and water reservoirs along its pathway with a maximum length of less than 78 km.

We have discovered new inexpensive ways to manage the water shortage. The HUG exceeds the previous distance limits of transferring fresh water by a factor of ten from 70 km to 1000 km.

Water pipeline projects are becoming an increasingly important part of Australian infrastructure development in order to ensure water supply to the nation’s growing population.

Western Australia from the Tully River to Brisbane, Queensland           is less cost than the proposed pipeline from the Burdekin River to Brisbane which is projected to cost approximately $7.5 billion for infrastructure and about $250 million for annual operation pump stations, four reservoirs and 11 tunnels.  Enter the HUG: and the price is 30% less.

HUG Technology

HUG is a patented water transfer system that will literally change the face of our world as we know it. Imagine new fresh water delivered over 1000 km in a HUG ocean pipeline.

Objective: to build an ocean-going pipeline  longer than 1000 km

  • With a pipeline built on the ocean floor, the cost would be close to $3.6 million/mile.
  • Large dimension pumps adds to the cost (every 70 km), which is only possible if a reservoir can be built on nearby land: the cost of $6.4 million/mile.
  • Now let us eliminate the large dimension pumps with a HUG: the cost  is  reduced to less than $1million/mile. What a bargain!

What we call violent conflict should be seen for what it is: poverty hunger, water scarcity & despair. Most of all we need to subdue our fears and cynicism and provide HOPE. We need science and technology.

THE HUG

  • The new patented pipeline, called HUG require little or no huge water pumps. This water pipeline, encourages a laminar flow with little or no friction. This means a water transfer system in America would go for hundreds of kilometers with fewer pumps
  • The traditional method is a straight pipeline, which develops a turbulent flow, caused by the friction on the inside lining of this pipeline.
  • This old pipeline system requires several expensive large dimension water pumps and water reservoirs along its pathway with a maximum length of less than 78 km.

Presently,  excess fresh water is wasted as it flows into the ocean. Present technology of water transfer is limited to 80 km between pumping stations.  No one has considered the possibility of transferring fresh water through the ocean over a distance of ten times that limitation of 80 km. One can float these pipelines at a depth of 30 meters in an ocean environment, which allows one country to sell its excess water to another country over a long distance. 

This fresh water pipeline is extruded directly into the ocean from a barge or from a sea shore without any welding required.
